"I cannot begin to tell everyone how great of a franchise Mortal Kombat is!! While the second movie was a disappointment, the first one is AMAZING and this DVD set it's a great collection for any Mortal Kombat or martial arts movie fans!! The fights and action are amazing!! Mortal Kombat is certainly delivering when it comes to great fight scenes pack with WICKED stunts!! Few people realize just how great the story of Mortal Kombat really is! The movie follows the video game story (somewhat, it actually kind of kombines Mortal Kombat 1 & 2 in the first movie), which obviously adds to these awesome movies!! Don't miss out on owning the DVD collection. Even if you're not a Mortal Kombat fan, it's a great addition for any lovers of martial arts movies or science fiction/fantasy movies!!Mortal Kombat 3: KOMING SOON (I hope!!!)"

"If you love kung fu or action flicks pick up Mortal Kombat. This movie rocks! I was a little disappointed that the film was in PG-13 and not rate R, mainly because the MK franchise was all about the insense blood and gore. But, When I fist saw this movie in theaters it blew me away, the acting was good but the kung fu fightin' was better. The charaters in the film are all cool, I like Raiden (or is it Rayden?) the best along with Scorpion. The second film New Line produced wasnt as great as the original but still had its moments. If you haven't seen the oringial Kombat, give it a play. Hey everyone likes kung ku fightin..
Mortal Kombat Annihilation is a fun ride. Many critics out there say this movie blows, which isn't true. People who haven't played any of the games are confused at the story line and sorts. Sure the voice actin' could use a little work but who cares, the action is where its all about in kung fu flicks. I enjoyed both the 1st and 2nd film, there are tons of charaters from the games included in this movie, should please alot of the many gamers out there looking for there favorite charater appreances. Rumors, Rumors of a third instalment of the film! Will there be a round three??

"This review is for the 1st MK movie read part 1 1st. So Raiden tells Liu Kang, Sonya, & Cage the tornament ain't about revenge a vendetta or ego it's for the the fate of the World. My favorite fight scenes Liu Kang vs Reptile Cage vs Goro & Cage vs Scorpion Robin Shou, Linden Ashby, & Bridgett Wilson all meshed well together the casting of Lambert as Raiden was great Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa he may have not looked like MK1 Shang Tsung but he was excellent. Good soundtrack great fight scenes it was rather a good film adaptation of a game. It really shows that if Paul WS Anderson doesn't write the script he can produce decent movies."

"Although I haven't bought this package, I've seen both films.
The first film was really great, it earned 5/5 stars right off the back.
The fight scenes were intense, with some great, upbeat music playing. In addition to the intensity, there was a lot of first-person views. There There was a cliffhanger ending, though.
The second film was OK, but not as good as the first one. It continues the first one, but they used totally different actors to play Raiden, Sonya, Jax, and Johnny Cage. I would give it a 4/5 stars because of the short fight scenes and over-use of slow motion. I would have given it a 3/5, but it earned a star for the awesome music. It was pretty good film, for those who appreciate the hard work of others."
